Reports of young girls soliciting money in Penn Yan may or may not be Girls Scouts. Residents be careful whom you give your money to. According to a news release, a few girls have been asking for cash from businesses in Penn Yan this week to fund a trip to Seabreeze.
Member of the community should know that the policy of Girl Scouts is that girls may not directly solicit cash donations, but must do money-earning for their activities through delivery of a product or service to the customer.
Some examples of approved money-earning projects for Girl Scouts might be: collecting used ink cartridges turned in for money, conducting car washes or bake sales, and babysitting.
